Finishing and moulds

I have been having some problems getting a grade A finish on my parts and was wondering if anyone is achieving this? My problem is that as the tape contracts it leaves some impurities, like resin rich areas which then have to be sanded back, which takes time and effort. Has anyone found a better way? I have read that some companies use 2 kinds of tape, one for release and one for compression, which might work better?

 

I was also considering making some female moulds to press against the wrapped part to give a better finish but am worried I may come across some problems?
